Light at the End of the Tunnel for shelly lovegrove
If you love an image (whether it's yours or someone else's) and want to make sure others get a chance to see it, you can “feature” it by choosing the “Spotlight” button.
When an image is Spotlighted, it receives enhanced visibility in premium spots throughout the site. Spotlighted images are rotated through these higher-visibility positions to ensure the best opportunity for the images to be seen by JPG users.
If you see a great photo that would make a perfect entry for one of our Shoot Out photo contests but it was uploaded by another user, now you can enter that photo in the contest and, if it wins, you get to share in the contest winnings.
Like a photo editor, if you've got an eye for great work, find it and submit it to a contest. If it wins, since you staked the entry fee, you'll take home part of the prize (the rest, of course, goes to the member who shot the image).

I made a decision a long time ago to enter a pic in every JPG Theme that I could, but this one is difficult for me to do. You see I don’t think my photos are underrated. I think they are overrated. At the moment I have 197 hot photos and most of my photos receive double-digit favorites and props. So I’ve decided to bring back a photo that I’ve deleted, not because JPG members did underrate it, but because it was a victim of my own tendency to underrate my photos.
JPG doesn’t allow large sets of photos so when I did my 365 Days photo shoot I left only a few of them on JPG and uploaded all 365 of them on Flickr in one large set. I would have had to create 33 photo essays on JPG. I’m on day 207 of another 365 day photo shoot where I dedicate a photo a day to some JPG member. Once again the entire 365 photos will appear on Flickr in one large set while only a few will remain on JPG.
Often the members I dedicate photos to have not received the attention they deserve. It is my hope that my link to their site might help.
This photo was one I uploaded for Sean-Michael Gettys’ Invisible Self Portrait series. It was my Week 2 entry in that series.
One of my favorite mistakes, this photo was a failed attempt at blur photography while riding the John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) Skytrain.
